ECCO’s Founder Publishes Book of Inspirational Homilies

Let me tell you a story

Let me tell you a story

Monsignor Jim Carter has been writing and delivering inspirational homilies for over fifty years. After any given Mass, parishioners would discuss his message well into the week and began looking forward to his next inspirational homily. Monsignor Carter’s friends and parishioners encouraged him to publish this book of selected homilies so that his down-to-earth, wise and insightful reflections would be shared with as many people as possible.


All proceeds are donated to ECCO. We are grateful to Monsignor Carter for almost 30 years of leadership, support, and commitment to serving the community  – and a big thanks to everyone who has purchased a copy of his book.

Best of Mt P Mag Cover A Conversation With Monsignor James A. Carter

Carter was featured on the cover of the 2017 Jan/Feb edition of Mount Pleasant Magazine, and he sat down with MPM for a conversation about his many years serving in the priesthood. MPM writes:

“Then, of course, there is the meat-and-potatoes of what a monsignor does at the helm of his parish: inspire the church members with well constructed homilies for a variety of occasions. In fact, my friend Claire, who attended Christ Our King for many years and recently saw my Instagram photo of the gardens, asked me if I’ve begun attending, lauding Monsignor Carter’s “great” homilies for school Masses and even funerals. It’s clear that delivering the Word is a craft the monsignor takes seriously, and the more challenging the topic, the more he embraces it.”
